The 29g project is moving allong nicely now. In the mail is a dimond hole saw to drill the tank, 2 1inch bulkheads, a hood reflector, and cooling fans. Coming when i meet my friend soon to sell the 20L's light is a coral life superskimmer 74.99 from foster and smith(Man i can't belive that price!! :eek1: :rollface: ). And last when I sell the coral to Reef4fun is a 250 watt metal halide ballast with xm bulb.
The one thing i need is some sand does anyone have some for sale????? Not living would be nice and the less course the better???
The 250watts will put me at 8.6 watts per gallon boy i can't wait :rollface:

Most all Wal-Marts carry the southdown "Oldcastle" sand now. Should be able to pick up a 50lb bag for $5 bucks.

Nathan, how big of a hole saw did you buy? You need a 1 3/4 bit for a one inch bulkhead. I just wanted to make sure you bought a big enough bit to drill the tank with.

I went to walmart today and they had sand but it all said NOT FOR AQUARIUM USE. Is this normal of oldcastle/ southdown or is it the wrong stuff
